White Hot: California driver wins Late Models at Havasu 95 Speedway
California driver Linny White sped past the field in the 100-lap Late Models main event to cap a record-setting night of races at Havasu 95 Speedway on Saturday.
White, who won four of last season’s six main events on the way to the season title, finished the night’s final race in 59 minutes, 11.447 seconds, nearly two seconds faster than Kyle Meyer in second place. Ron Daniel was the only other driver on the lead lap, finishing third.
It was a crowded day of racing at the 1/4-mile oval, with more than 80 cars entered for the largest car count in the 13-year history of the track.
Ryan Schartau won the 50-lap 602 Modifieds race by more than five seconds in 19:49.163, hitting a top speed of 57.74 mph, the fastest of any car on the afternoon. Doug Hamm was second and Tanner Reif third.
Tyler Savage kept his hot streak rolling, winning his third straight Street Stocks race, edging Gavin Bucy in the main event with a time of 13:45.917. Bucy, who had finished third in the last two races, was just half a second back in second and Jeremy Orozco was third.
Jeff Prieur won his third Factory Stocks main event of the season, topping Adam Simon and Chris McCatlin. Prieur won the season’s first two races before finishing second last month.
Jimmy Mardis won the Pony Stocks race in 38:38.652, topping John Bereika by two seconds. David Heusterberg, who won the season’s first main event, was third.
Jake Bolman beat out Owen Romzek to win the first of two 15-lap Bandoleros main events and finished second in the latter. Ethan Cheek won the second race and Skyler Meisenbach, who has finished third in all four races this season, now leads the season standings.
